Vulvar cancer occurs when abnormal cells grow out of control in the vulva. The vulva includes the lips of the vagina, the sensitive tissue between those lips called the clitoris and the opening of the vagina. Our team of gynecologic oncologists is experienced in treating vulvar cancer and work in close collaboration with radiation oncologists and plastic surgeons within the Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center.
